Plus, the MEs office is working to confirm the ID of the fourth victim. Also, detectives revealed that there is no blood-relations between the Codarrian/Coderica and Jocalyn Gray. The Marion County Sheriffs Office is working with theFlorida Department of Law Enforcement(FDLE) in gathering and examining forensic elements from this homicide case. We need somebody from this community to come forward, said Marion County Sheriffs Office Lt. Chris Vorisek. For the victims sake, any information you have could help catch the person(s) responsible for this homicide. The Marion County Sheriffs Office is offering a reward of up to $5,000 to anyone with information leading to an arrest. If you have details about this homicide, call 352-732-911.

With new students and new schedules this year, parents may wish to visit their childs school during orientation sessions. These events give parents and students the opportunity to become accustomed to their new or returning school outside normal class hours. They also offer advance notice of class schedules, bus routes and stop times, extracurricular activities, and other school-related opportunities. Heres a listing of orientation dates and times by school. New students, especially kindergarten-aged children, may register for school now.

This months event is coming up on Thursday, Aug. 25, at 7 p.m. in the Clubhouse. Notices have been placed in conspicuous places around the clubhouse, but I mention this now because I think all of our neighbors might want to circle the date on their calendars. The event is intriguingly called a WoManly Fashion Event. When I asked Peggy about the plans, she said, It is something special, and I hope everyone drags themselves in to enjoy the show. Well, that caught my attention, and probably that of many others as well. When I started thinking about her choice of a name for the event WoManly, my strange mind segued to something else Woman/Manwhat kinds of things might be common to both genders that could be surprising to some of us? This brings me to the explanation for the photos which I am sure you have noticed by nowtattoos. I remember the first time I ever actually saw a tattoo on someone. It was on the arm of my dads cousin who had been in the U.S. Navy during World War II. It was, quite naturally, an anchor with appropriate wording. I do not remember what the words were because I was so young that I doubt I was reading at that point. I asked all kinds of questions which my family good-naturedly answered. I suppose that is when I got the idea that tattoos were just for men who were sailors. Funny how a childs mind works! When our Social Activities Committee met this past week, I was noticing the lovely tans of many of our community. Then it hit me look at all the different tattoos on these folks both men and women. They were not all sailors, I am sure. When did both sexes start adorning themselves with this body art? So I decided to call some local tattoo artists and ask their approximate ratio of male vs. female clients. WoManly lifestyle event on schedule for Aug. 25 Surprisingly, or maybe not, the people I contacted agreed that around 70 to 75 percent of those getting tattoos in the Ocala area are female. Alley Kat (the name he gave me) of FAT KATS ARTISTRY on the square in downtown Ocala, said that his clients range in age from 16 to 70 with the percentage of piercings just about equaling the tattoos. He said he had been operating his business for about five years. I have permission from all these women to show their tats even without identifying each one specifically. Do not misunderstand. No one opposed my giving her name, but I decided just to show the art and not identity the person. Of course tattoos are a matter of personal choice. The amalgamation of many people making varying choices is one of the many things that make our community a blend of different, but compatible, people. The common factor always remains that we are (whether adorned by body art or not) a lively place filled with lovely people. Some of the tattoos found on women in Fairfield Village. Priscilla Geissal

But this time, you wont have to. Supporters are ready, falling over themselves to help you make your case. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Venus might be your ruling planet, but Mars is in the picture as well. So dont be surprised if your romantic relationships are a bit rocky at this time. But theyll soon smooth over. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Geminis might rush into romance and risk being wrong about someone rather than be left with no one. But this is one time when its wiser to be wary of where your heart takes you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) With all (or most) of those pesky problems behind you, take time for your family and friends. Travel aspects are favored, with long-distance journeys high on the list. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might have started to question the wisdom of being open with someone you hoped you could trust. But be assured you wont be disappointed. Youll soon hear good news. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You have a reputation for honesty and integrity, and that will help turn around a situation that was not only disappointing but also quite unfair. Good luck. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A happy event creates a closer tie with a family member who seemed hopelessly estranged. Positive aspects also dominate in important career matters. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your ruling planet, Pluto, helps you adjust to change. So, stop putting off that longdelayed move, and make it with the assurance that youre doing the right thing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You have a wonderful capacity to learn quickly and well. This will help you when you are faced with an opportunity to move on to a new path in life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Good news: You suddenly find that youre not facing that new challenge alone. You now have someone at your side, ready to offer whatever support you might need. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your versatility which is just one of those aspects of yourself that make you so special helps you adapt to the challenges of a new and exciting opportunity. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your sensitive nature picks up on the needs of others. But what about your desires? You need to take more time to assess what your goals are and, if necessary, redirect them. BORN THIS WEEK: You give your trust openly and easily. People find you easy to be with and enjoy your wit, your good sense, and your capacity to love and be loved. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Im sorry; I was looking at my book. Well, she said in a very disgusted manner, the government is thinking about taxing junk food. Can you imagine anything more ludicrous than that? I always like to, at least try to think of the positive side of things. With the way our beloved politicians have been going these days, it is very hard to find the positive side. Although I am not in favor of taxes, I know that as a citizen I need to pay my fair share. I have no problem with that. Im not, however, in favor of tacking on some new taxes. Whats wrong with the old ones? Then my wife said something that turned my thinking all the way around. You do know what junk food is, dont you? That was a crazy thing to say. Of course, I knew what junk food was. I stay away from that food category and pride myself in eating healthy food every day. No junk food for me, thank you. I shrugged it off at the time and replied to my wife, Oh well, the government has to do whatever it has to do in times like these. You do know that Apple Fritters are considered junk food by our government? And when they start taxing junk food they will be taxing your Apple Fritters. They dont. They wouldnt. They better not! At this point, my even keel was experiencing some very turbulent tendencies. I try to be a good citizen but there comes a time when a person has to put his foot down. I had come to the point where as that old philosopher who said, Thats all I can stands, I cant stands no more! What I want to say to good old Mr. Uncle Sam is simply; do not touch my Apple Fritters. Some things in life are sacred and for somebody to fool with them will only rile the anger of those religious people devoted to Apple Fritter Veneration. Believe me; you do not want the Apple Fritter Gang to get riled. The Creed of these Apple Fritter followers is simply, an Apple Fritter a day keeps the blues away. Nothing cheers the day like starting it with a freshly baked Apple Fritter. Regardless of the problems I have to face during the day, if I start with an Apple Fritter the day seems to go much better. Now, Mr. Uncle Sam, let me explain some of the facts of life to you. First, Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness is one of the most famous phrases in the United States Declaration of Independence and considered by some as part of one of the most well crafted, influential sentences in the history of the English language. These three aspects are listed among the unalienable rights or sovereign rights of man. Everybody knows that the phrase the pursuit of happiness, is a reference to Apple Fritters. No more pure form of happiness exists then enjoying a freshly baked Apple Fritter. And another thing, why blame the lowly Apple Fritter on the debt problem? I have been associated with Apple Fritters most of my life and I have never known an Apple Fritter to spend money it does not have. I have given this a lot of thought. Apple Fritters are not responsible for the debt problem in our country but rather politicians are responsible. My thought is simply this. Instead of considering Apple Fritters as junk food, why not consider politicians as junk politicians and tax them. That would make much more sense. Out in the real world everybody operates along these lines; if you create a debt, you have an obligation to pay that debt and not shove it off on somebody else. The only ones who do this are all those Junk Politicians who have no sense of how much a dollar is really worth let alone where it comes from. I still stand by the words of Jesus. And he (Jesus) said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). Mr. Uncle Sam, touch my Apple Fritter at your own peril. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, 1471 Pine Road, Ocala, FL 34472.

Just ask Lifestyle Director, Jennifer Geraldo and her wonderful social committee. They turned the beautiful resort pool of Stone Creek into a Margaritaville event. Jennifer would like to thank her entire Social Committee but especially Deb and Larry Beitel, Rick and Marge Casey, Karen and Eddie Snelson, Sandra Paskin, Karen and Jim Stein, Donna Jones, Deb and Logan Gray and Deb and Don Jones for their work on this event. Many of us come to an event and then leave never realizing all the man and woman hours that go into each event. There is planning, making and selling tickets, purchasing decorations or making them, booking entertainment, and caterers and of course, there is setup and clean-up. This committee is constantly looking for members to help with the many events they have planned. The two hundred residents and eight sales guests were met at the gate with a choice of colored leis. As you entered you heard the Jimmy Buffett type music by DJ, Richard Rubin. There was a Margaritaville or slushy machine donated by Pulte. Unfortunately, these margaritas contained no alcohol, but fun was had by all. It was a lovely, warm evening and so many were in the pool enjoying the company of neighbors and the great music. As one entered the pool, you had to watch the floating limes. Margaritas limes ... Food for the evening was catered by Hills Catering. There were hot dogs, hamburgers and salads. This entire evening cost only $7. You had a great setting the resort style pool, great people the residents of Stone Creek, wonderful music and delicious food. Can you ask for more? Jennifer and her Social Committee did provide more with many games. There was a noodle relay won by the team in lane one. There was a sponge toss also won by team one and the contents of the filled pitcher was tossed on one of the participants by Jennifer. This was a welcome splash of cold water. Those limes were there for a reason. The person stuffing their suit with the most won. Karen Snelson had 33 limes as the ladys winner. The mans winner will remain anonymous with 43 limes because his suit had pockets. There were also many residents who played volleyball. It was fun evening enjoyed by many. Thanks to Jennifer and her great Social Committee. Former Pinebrook resident Fill Evans paid a visit to Stone Creek visiting former neighbors and friends. Fill wants everyone he did not get a chance to see that he is doing well but misses Stone Creek. He was on a three week trip visiting Civil War places, as well as friends and family.

West Marion Messenger 8810 W. State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends On Point A nswer this question, if you can. What is the purpose of roads? Think of an answer and hold that thought. Well come back to it. For the second time in a month I sat through a scenic road hearing at the planning offices of Marion County well, most of it, anyway. The second of the two hearings, which was last week, was particularly bad. Speakers each have their own agenda, which is fine, but they dont know how to stay on topic, which was scenic roads. More than once, the planners had to remind people that we were there for scenic road ordinance discussions, not anything else. There were more people at the second hearing, about double the 13 that showed up the first time. I listened to comments for an hour and a half and then left, not feeling guilty at all. There really wasnt anything new. Back to that opening question: What is the purpose of roads? For me, roads serve one purpose: to get me from Point A to Point B as quickly and as safely as possible. Nothing else. I dont care if a road is scenic. In fact, I consider myself a good driver and I cant even tell you if a road is scenic. Im keepScenic roads: Is designation really needed Jim Clark Opening up the government J ames Madison, acknowledged by history as the father of the U.S. Constitution, noted, A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Taking Madisons wise words to heart, Floridas cutting-edge Sunshine Law exemplifies the principle of open government that underpins a democratic society. Enacted close to two decades ago, it has been a shining example for exercising the publics right and responsibility to hold government accountable by guaranteeing citizen access to the public records of the states governmental bodies. Under former Gov. Charlie Crist, the Sunshine Law shone brilliantly. During his tenure as governor, his office embraced open government by responding to public records requests from citizens, public interest groups and media outlets with alacrity and at little to no cost to the requesters. When Gov. Rick Scott assumed the governors office, however, he acted more like a chief executive of a private corporation accustomed to conducting business behind closed doors than the chief executive of Florida whos accountable to its citizens. Accordingly, he imposed a policy of using highly paid staffers and attorneys to field public records requests that became a de facto barrier to open government. The prohibitive costs associated with this policy not only cast a dark shadow over the transparency of the governors office, but also served to undermine the spirit and intent of Floridas model Sunshine Law. After months of doggedly defending his restrictive public records policy, Gov. Scott has, hopefully, seen the light. Amid a growing crescendo of criticism, he recently adopted a less restrictive policy. Administrative charges for public records requests requiring less than half an hour to process were eliminated. Also, the fee for requests requiring more than a half hour to fulfill is far less, given that its now based upon the lowest salary rate in the governors office rather than the highest regardless of who responds. Gov. Scotts revised public records policy is a welcome ray of sunshine that brings the governors office more in line with the open records policies of past Florida governors and the states other governmental bodies.

CALL US NOW! ing my eyes on the road and on traffic entering the road. I dont look at the canopy trees and whatever other decorative items there are. How often have you heard: Keep your eyes on the road! One speaker wanted more vegetation alongside the roads. Vegetation is going to help control the speed of the people. Really? Do you really think people are going to look at whats growing alongside the road and say, Id better slow down. Actually, if theres more vegetation, people better slow down, because people coming out of side roads and driveways are going to have their view hampered, and there will be more accidents. The best intersections are those where there is no vegetation at all. At the first meeting, there was the one lady who said she was driving on a road, saw how beautiful it was, and wanted to slam on the brakes to stop to take a picture. Boy, Im glad I wasnt driving behind her. The way I see it, heres the basic problem. The people who have lived here a long time remember the rural days of Marion County. Trouble is, those people are now a distinct minority. A very large number of people have moved to Marion County in the past 30 years. Census data from 1980 showed Marion County with 122,488 people. The census from last year shows Marion County with 331,500 people, a huge increase. Many of those people moved here for a reason, and it wasnt scenic roads. Many of them are retirees who moved here to live in safe, gated communities or deed restricted communities, but who want quick access to shopping, church, restaurants, doctors, hospitals and entertainment. They want smooth, accessible roads with synchronized traffic lights and excellent on-and-off roads to provide people with what they moved here for. These people either recognize, or have accepted, that they were moving to an urban county. Granted, there are still a number of country lanes that arent paved and that take you past some beautiful areas, including horse farms. But it is absolutely necessary that the through streets are as well paved and accessible as possible, and wide enough to handle the local traffic loads. Even the names have changed, something some people refuse to accept. Shady Road is now Southwest 27th Avenue, or County Road 475A. Southwest 19th Avenue Road evidently used to be called Easy Street. Even I remember when that road stopped not far south of 17th Street. And 60th Avenue on the west side used to be called Airport Road, but you have to work hard to find that name on an up-todate map. People who think Marion County is a rural county need only drive to some neighboring areas such as Levy, Gilchrist or Lafayette counties. Then youll get to see what rural really is. I remember when I was a kid and we had to drive somewhere, and my dads annoyance with drivers going below the speed limit on two-lane roads. He called them Sunday drivers, just out for a ride. The only people who should be out on the main roads are those who are trying to get somewhere. Sightseers should stick to the back roads. Let those of us who want to get where were going do so safely and quickly, regardless of whether its Sunday or not. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

The e-mail had an attachment that consisted of a Power Point presentation. There are times when you think, Do I want to risk opening this? I am so glad that I chose to open this one! I learned that the people of Russia presented a marvelous sculpture to the United States in memory of the horrible terror attack on our country on Sept. 11, 2001. This monument features a 40 foot steel teardrop the tear of grief suspended within a large bronze-clad tower. The memorial is located at The Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor, N.J. The artist/designer of this marvelous sculpture was Zurab Tsereteli. He has many sculptures throughout the world. He is also credited with the rebirth of the ancient technique of cloisonne enamel. The sculpture entitled To the Struggle Against World Terrorism weighs 175-tons and consists of a 100-foot tall rectangular bronze block with the teardrop suspended from the middle. The 11-sided granite base has the names of the 9/11 victims, as well as the victims of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings etched into it. As you stand looking at this marvelous monument, you can see the Statue of Liberty and the location of the World Trade Center Towers. This meThis is a rendering of the sculpture that was presented by the people of Russia to the United States as a memorial to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. It is located at The Peninsula in Bayonne Harbor, N.J. Sculpture was presented as 9/11 memorial morial was dedicated on Sept. 11, 2006 the fifth anniversary of that tragic day in America.

I once had an odd keel, but fortunately, I had the good sense to throw it back into the water from whence it came. I take pride in maintaining a certain sense of balance in my life. But, there are those times when all balance is thrown out the window. Just this past week when I was enjoying an unusually wonderful sense of balance in my life, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage changed my whole demeanor. We were watching the news on television. When I say we, I am not insinuating in any regard that I was paying any attention whatsoever to what was happening on the television screen. I usually have a book in hand I am perusing while I am allegedly watching TV. Out of nowhere, I heard her exclaim, They just wouldnt do that. I continued in my book and paid no attention to her. What in the world is wrong with those people? I heard her say. By now, my curiosity had gotten the best of me and I laid my book down and said, What has got you all riled up tonight? Didnt you hear what they just said? Mr. Uncle Sam, dont touch my Apple Fritter James Snyder Please see SNYDER Page 9 By Jeff Bryan R IVERLAND N EWS The signals are everywhere, but the one common goal, besides to keep traffic flowing, is to save taxpayers money. So is the installed heatrecovery water heating units and the 50 solar panels installed at the Marion County Jail. County officials recently touted the efforts of these money-saving devices, all made possible with a $2.45 million federal Energy Efficiency and Conversation Block Grant secured in 2009. While not all of the LED traffic lights were paid for through the grant, the funds made it possible for the county to complete their task started several years ago. All told, the county now has LED lights at 107 county-maintained intersections. Officials noted even the traffic signals in Dunnellon were replaced with LED lights. Those efforts have helped save the county a significant amount, Traffic Supervisor Stan Taylor explained. We save about $75,000 a year, he said, demonstrating the amount of electricity needed for a four-panel LED light is about half of what it needs to maintain just one incandescent bulb. Also, as part of the money received through the grant, the county changed the school zone lights, replacing them with solar panels to provide power, saving on average about $10 per month. Additionally, the county also installed energy-saving windows and waterless urinals at the McPherson Government Complex, county clerks office and the courthouse. The switch to waterless urinals saves the county about 1 million gallons of water usage annually. However, its the energysaving measures at the Marion County Jail officials seem most proud of. With the installation of the heat-recovery water heating units on one of the two 120-ton air conditioning chiller units that cool the jail and the 50 solar panels, said Andy Race, the Marion County facilities management director, officials will see a significant drop in electric bills in measures that provide what he calls free hot water. We can save up to $3,000 in electricity on heating County saving money with energy efforts at jail hot water alone, he explained. Using the stimulus funds, the county will see an immediate impact on savings, Race sad. Had county officials financed the project, it would have taken upward of 30 years to see savings. Were seeing them now, Race explained. The heat-recovery system and solar panels produce enough hot water for the jail to prepare about 6,000 meals a day, do dishes and laundry as well as supply hot water for showers. Plans call for the county to install another heat-recovery unit and up to another 50 solar panels. Both of those projects would use money from the federal grant, officials said. Also, most of the countys 22 fire stations are being upgraded with heat-recovery units and solar panels.

I once had an odd keel, but fortunately, I had the good sense to throw it back into the water from whence it came. I take pride in maintaining a certain sense of balance in my life. But, there are those times when all balance is thrown out the window. Just this past week when I was enjoying an unusually wonderful sense of balance in my life, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage changed my whole demeanor. We were watching the news on television. When I say we, I am not insinuating in any regard that I was paying any attention whatsoever to what was happening on the television screen. I usually have a book in hand I am perusing while I am allegedly watching TV. Out of nowhere, I heard her exclaim, They just wouldnt do that. I continued in my book and paid no attention to her. What in the world is wrong with those people? I heard her say. By now, my curiosity had gotten the best of me and I laid my book down and said, What has got you all riled up tonight? Didnt you hear what they just said? Mr. Uncle Sam, dont touch my Apple Fritter James Snyder Please see SNYDER Page 9 By Jeff Bryan R IVERLAND N EWS The signals are everywhere, but the one common goal, besides to keep traffic flowing, is to save taxpayers money. So is the installed heatrecovery water heating units and the 50 solar panels installed at the Marion County Jail. County officials recently touted the efforts of these money-saving devices, all made possible with a $2.45 million federal Energy Efficiency and Conversation Block Grant secured in 2009. While not all of the LED traffic lights were paid for through the grant, the funds made it possible for the county to complete their task started several years ago. All told, the county now has LED lights at 107 county-maintained intersections. Officials noted even the traffic signals in Dunnellon were replaced with LED lights. Those efforts have helped save the county a significant amount, Traffic Supervisor Stan Taylor explained. We save about $75,000 a year, he said, demonstrating the amount of electricity needed for a four-panel LED light is about half of what it needs to maintain just one incandescent bulb. Also, as part of the money received through the grant, the county changed the school zone lights, replacing them with solar panels to provide power, saving on average about $10 per month. Additionally, the county also installed energy-saving windows and waterless urinals at the McPherson Government Complex, county clerks office and the courthouse. The switch to waterless urinals saves the county about 1 million gallons of water usage annually. However, its the energysaving measures at the Marion County Jail officials seem most proud of.

West Marion Messenger 8810 W. State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends On Point A nswer this question, if you can. What is the purpose of roads? Think of an answer and hold that thought. Well come back to it. For the second time in a month I sat through a scenic road hearing at the planning offices of Marion County well, most of it, anyway. The second of the two hearings, which was last week, was particularly bad. Speakers each have their own agenda, which is fine, but they dont know how to stay on topic, which was scenic roads. More than once, the planners had to remind people that we were there for scenic road ordinance discussions, not anything else. There were more people at the second hearing, about double the 13 that showed up the first time. I listened to comments for an hour and a half and then left, not feeling guilty at all. There really wasnt anything new. Back to that opening question: What is the purpose of roads? For me, roads serve one purpose: to get me from Point A to Point B as quickly and as safely as possible. Nothing else. I dont care if a road is scenic. In fact, I consider myself a good driver and I cant even tell you if a road is scenic. Im keepScenic roads: Is designation really needed Jim Clark Opening up the government J ames Madison, acknowledged by history as the father of the U.S. Constitution, noted, A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Taking Madisons wise words to heart, Floridas cutting-edge Sunshine Law exemplifies the principle of open government that underpins a democratic society. Enacted close to two decades ago, it has been a shining example for exercising the publics right and responsibility to hold government accountable by guaranteeing citizen access to the public records of the states governmental bodies. Under former Gov. Charlie Crist, the Sunshine Law shone brilliantly. During his tenure as governor, his office embraced open government by responding to public records requests from citizens, public interest groups and media outlets with alacrity and at little to no cost to the requesters. When Gov. Rick Scott assumed the governors office, however, he acted more like a chief executive of a private corporation accustomed to conducting business behind closed doors than the chief executive of Florida whos accountable to its citizens. Accordingly, he imposed a policy of using highly paid staffers and attorneys to field public records requests that became a de facto barrier to open government. The prohibitive costs associated with this policy not only cast a dark shadow over the transparency of the governors office, but also served to undermine the spirit and intent of Floridas model Sunshine Law. After months of doggedly defending his restrictive public records policy, Gov. Scott has, hopefully, seen the light. Amid a growing crescendo of criticism, he recently adopted a less restrictive policy. Administrative charges for public records requests requiring less than half an hour to process were eliminated. Also, the fee for requests requiring more than a half hour to fulfill is far less, given that its now based upon the lowest salary rate in the governors office rather than the highest regardless of who responds. Gov. Scotts revised public records policy is a welcome ray of sunshine that brings the governors office more in line with the open records policies of past Florida governors and the states other governmental bodies.

CALL US NOW! ing my eyes on the road and on traffic entering the road. I dont look at the canopy trees and whatever other decorative items there are. How often have you heard: Keep your eyes on the road! One speaker wanted more vegetation alongside the roads. Vegetation is going to help control the speed of the people. Really? Do you really think people are going to look at whats growing alongside the road and say, Id better slow down. Actually, if theres more vegetation, people better slow down, because people coming out of side roads and driveways are going to have their view hampered, and there will be more accidents. The best intersections are those where there is no vegetation at all. At the first meeting, there was the one lady who said she was driving on a road, saw how beautiful it was, and wanted to slam on the brakes to stop to take a picture. Boy, Im glad I wasnt driving behind her. The way I see it, heres the basic problem. The people who have lived here a long time remember the rural days of Marion County. Trouble is, those people are now a distinct minority. A very large number of people have moved to Marion County in the past 30 years. Census data from 1980 showed Marion County with 122,488 people. The census from last year shows Marion County with 331,500 people, a huge increase. Many of those people moved here for a reason, and it wasnt scenic roads. Many of them are retirees who moved here to live in safe, gated communities or deed restricted communities, but who want quick access to shopping, church, restaurants, doctors, hospitals and entertainment. They want smooth, accessible roads with synchronized traffic lights and excellent on-and-off roads to provide people with what they moved here for. These people either recognize, or have accepted, that they were moving to an urban county. Granted, there are still a number of country lanes that arent paved and that take you past some beautiful areas, including horse farms. But it is absolutely necessary that the through streets are as well paved and accessible as possible, and wide enough to handle the local traffic loads. Even the names have changed, something some people refuse to accept. Shady Road is now Southwest 27th Avenue, or County Road 475A. Southwest 19th Avenue Road evidently used to be called Easy Street. Even I remember when that road stopped not far south of 17th Street. And 60th Avenue on the west side used to be called Airport Road, but you have to work hard to find that name on an up-todate map. People who think Marion County is a rural county need only drive to some neighboring areas such as Levy, Gilchrist or Lafayette counties. Then youll get to see what rural really is. I remember when I was a kid and we had to drive somewhere, and my dads annoyance with drivers going below the speed limit on two-lane roads. He called them Sunday drivers, just out for a ride. The only people who should be out on the main roads are those who are trying to get somewhere. Sightseers should stick to the back roads. Let those of us who want to get where were going do so safely and quickly, regardless of whether its Sunday or not. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

The e-mail had an attachment that consisted of a Power Point presentation. There are times when you think, Do I want to risk opening this? I am so glad that I chose to open this one! I learned that the people of Russia presented a marvelous sculpture to the United States in memory of the horrible terror attack on our country on Sept. 11, 2001. This monument features a 40 foot steel teardrop the tear of grief suspended within a large bronze-clad tower. The memorial is located at The Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor, N.J. The artist/designer of this marvelous sculpture was Zurab Tsereteli. He has many sculptures throughout the world. He is also credited with the rebirth of the ancient technique of cloisonne enamel. The sculpture entitled To the Struggle Against World Terrorism weighs 175-tons and consists of a 100-foot tall rectangular bronze block with the teardrop suspended from the middle. The 11-sided granite base has the names of the 9/11 victims, as well as the victims of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings etched into it. As you stand looking at this marvelous monument, you can see the Statue of Liberty and the location of the World Trade Center Towers.

Im sorry; I was looking at my book. Well, she said in a very disgusted manner, the government is thinking about taxing junk food. Can you imagine anything more ludicrous than that? I always like to, at least try to think of the positive side of things. With the way our beloved politicians have been going these days, it is very hard to find the positive side. Although I am not in favor of taxes, I know that as a citizen I need to pay my fair share. I have no problem with that. Im not, however, in favor of tacking on some new taxes. Whats wrong with the old ones? Then my wife said something that turned my thinking all the way around. You do know what junk food is, dont you? That was a crazy thing to say. Of course, I knew what junk food was. I stay away from that food category and pride myself in eating healthy food every day. No junk food for me, thank you. I shrugged it off at the time and replied to my wife, Oh well, the government has to do whatever it has to do in times like these. You do know that Apple Fritters are considered junk food by our government? And when they start taxing junk food they will be taxing your Apple Fritters. They dont. They wouldnt. They better not! At this point, my even keel was experiencing some very turbulent tendencies. I try to be a good citizen but there comes a time when a person has to put his foot down. I had come to the point where as that old philosopher who said, Thats all I can stands, I cant stands no more! What I want to say to good old Mr. Uncle Sam is simply; do not touch my Apple Fritters. Some things in life are sacred and for somebody to fool with them will only rile the anger of those religious people devoted to Apple Fritter Veneration. Believe me; you do not want the Apple Fritter Gang to get riled. The Creed of these Apple Fritter followers is simply, an Apple Fritter a day keeps the blues away. Nothing cheers the day like starting it with a freshly baked Apple Fritter. Regardless of the problems I have to face during the day, if I start with an Apple Fritter the day seems to go much better. Now, Mr. Uncle Sam, let me explain some of the facts of life to you. First, Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness is one of the most famous phrases in the United States Declaration of Independence and considered by some as part of one of the most well crafted, influential sentences in the history of the English language. These three aspects are listed among the unalienable rights or sovereign rights of man. Everybody knows that the phrase the pursuit of happiness, is a reference to Apple Fritters. No more pure form of happiness exists then enjoying a freshly baked Apple Fritter. And another thing, why blame the lowly Apple Fritter on the debt problem? I have been associated with Apple Fritters most of my life and I have never known an Apple Fritter to spend money it does not have. I have given this a lot of thought. Apple Fritters are not responsible for the debt problem in our country but rather politicians are responsible. My thought is simply this. Instead of considering Apple Fritters as junk food, why not consider politicians as junk politicians and tax them. That would make much more sense. Out in the real world everybody operates along these lines; if you create a debt, you have an obligation to pay that debt and not shove it off on somebody else. The only ones who do this are all those Junk Politicians who have no sense of how much a dollar is really worth let alone where it comes from. I still stand by the words of Jesus. And he (Jesus) said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). Mr. Uncle Sam, touch my Apple Fritter at your own peril. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, 1471 Pine Road, Ocala, FL 34472.

Just ask Lifestyle Director, Jennifer Geraldo and her wonderful social committee. They turned the beautiful resort pool of Stone Creek into a Margaritaville event. Jennifer would like to thank her entire Social Committee but especially Deb and Larry Beitel, Rick and Marge Casey, Karen and Eddie Snelson, Sandra Paskin, Karen and Jim Stein, Donna Jones, Deb and Logan Gray and Deb and Don Jones for their work on this event. Many of us come to an event and then leave never realizing all the man and woman hours that go into each event. There is planning, making and selling tickets, purchasing decorations or making them, booking entertainment, and caterers and of course, there is setup and clean-up. This committee is constantly looking for members to help with the many events they have planned. The two hundred residents and eight sales guests were met at the gate with a choice of colored leis. As you entered you heard the Jimmy Buffett type music by DJ, Richard Rubin. There was a Margaritaville or slushy machine donated by Pulte. Unfortunately, these margaritas contained no alcohol, but fun was had by all. It was a lovely, warm evening and so many were in the pool enjoying the company of neighbors and the great music. As one entered the pool, you had to watch the floating limes. Margaritas limes ... Food for the evening was catered by Hills Catering. There were hot dogs, hamburgers and salads. This entire evening cost only $7. You had a great setting the resort style pool, great people the residents of Stone Creek, wonderful music and delicious food. Can you ask for more? Jennifer and her Social Committee did provide more with many games. There was a noodle relay won by the team in lane one. There was a sponge toss also won by team one and the contents of the filled pitcher was tossed on one of the participants by Jennifer. This was a welcome splash of cold water. Those limes were there for a reason. The person stuffing their suit with the most won. Karen Snelson had 33 limes as the ladys winner. The mans winner will remain anonymous with 43 limes because his suit had pockets. There were also many residents who played volleyball. It was fun evening enjoyed by many. Thanks to Jennifer and her great Social Committee. Former Pinebrook resident Fill Evans paid a visit to Stone Creek visiting former neighbors and friends. Fill wants everyone he did not get a chance to see that he is doing well but misses Stone Creek. He was on a three week trip visiting Civil War places, as well as friends and family. News from the Stone Creek Grille: Aug. 27 from 5 to 8 pm there will be ranch night with live entertainment by Fifth Gear and a southwestern buffet for $15.95. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 352-291-2140.

But this time, you wont have to. Supporters are ready, falling over themselves to help you make your case.

But theyll soon smooth over. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Geminis might rush into romance and risk being wrong about someone rather than be left with no one. But this is one time when its wiser to be wary of where your heart takes you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) With all (or most) of those pesky problems behind you, take time for your family and friends. Travel aspects are favored, with long-distance journeys high on the list.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You have a reputation for honesty and integrity, and that will help turn around a situation that was not only disappointing but also quite unfair. Good luck. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A happy event creates a closer tie with a family member who seemed hopelessly estranged. Positive aspects also dominate in important career matters. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your ruling planet, Pluto, helps you adjust to change. So, stop putting off that longdelayed move, and make it with the assurance that youre doing the right thing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You have a wonderful capacity to learn quickly and well. This will help you when you are faced with an opportunity to move on to a new path in life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your versatility which is just one of those aspects of yourself that make you so special helps you adapt to the challenges of a new and exciting opportunity. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your sensitive nature picks up on the needs of others. But what about your desires? You need to take more time to assess what your goals are and, if necessary, redirect them. BORN THIS WEEK: You give your trust openly and easily. People find you easy to be with and enjoy your wit, your good sense, and your capacity to love and be loved. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

The afternoon and evening classes run concurrently and attendance can be mixed, depending upon availability. Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriff's Office.

The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team.

This months event is coming up on Thursday, Aug. 25, at 7 p.m. in the Clubhouse. Notices have been placed in conspicuous places around the clubhouse, but I mention this now because I think all of our neighbors might want to circle the date on their calendars. The event is intriguingly called a WoManly Fashion Event. When I asked Peggy about the plans, she said, It is something special, and I hope everyone drags themselves in to enjoy the show. Well, that caught my attention, and probably that of many others as well. When I started thinking about her choice of a name for the event WoManly, my strange mind segued to something else Woman/Manwhat kinds of things might be common to both genders that could be surprising to some of us? This brings me to the explanation for the photos which I am sure you have noticed by nowtattoos. I remember the first time I ever actually saw a tattoo on someone. It was on the arm of my dads cousin who had been in the U.S. Navy during World War II. It was, quite naturally, an anchor with appropriate wording. I do not remember what the words were because I was so young that I doubt I was reading at that point. I asked all kinds of questions which my family good-naturedly answered. I suppose that is when I got the idea that tattoos were just for men who were sailors. Funny how a childs mind works! When our Social Activities Committee met this past week, I was noticing the lovely tans of many of our community. Then it hit me look at all the different tattoos on these folks both men and women. They were not all sailors, I am sure. When did both sexes start adorning themselves with this body art? So I decided to call some local tattoo artists and ask their approximate ratio of male vs. female clients. WoManly lifestyle event on schedule for Aug. 25 Surprisingly, or maybe not, the people I contacted agreed that around 70 to 75 percent of those getting tattoos in the Ocala area are female. Alley Kat (the name he gave me) of FAT KATS ARTISTRY on the square in downtown Ocala, said that his clients range in age from 16 to 70 with the percentage of piercings just about equaling the tattoos. He said he had been operating his business for about five years. I have permission from all these women to show their tats even without identifying each one specifically. Do not misunderstand. No one opposed my giving her name, but I decided just to show the art and not identity the person. Of course tattoos are a matter of personal choice. The amalgamation of many people making varying choices is one of the many things that make our community a blend of different, but compatible, people. The common factor always remains that we are (whether adorned by body art or not) a lively place filled with lovely people. Some of the tattoos found on women in Fairfield Village. Priscilla Geissal
